Social network analysis focuses on the analysis of patterns of relationships among people, organizations, states and such social entities. Social network analysis provides both a visual and a mathematical analysis of humanunderstanding of how they behave is crucial to their efficient operation. Fortunately, data on networks is plentiful by visualizing this data, it is possible to greatly improve our understanding. In this paper a state of the art survey of the works done on social network analysis ranging from pure mathematical analyses in graphs to analyzing the social networks in Semantic Web is given. The main goal is to provide a road map for researchers working on different aspects of Social Network Analysis.
